3 Chunky Knits I’m Loving for AW17

January 10, 2018

Anybody else absolutely love snuggling up in chunky knits in front of the TV with a cuppa during these chilly, wintry nights?

If you live in England, you’ll know that we’ve been experiencing freezing temperatures lately. This is following the extreme snowy and icy weather that came from the USA.

Now, I know chunky knitted jumpers are always in fashion for the Autumn/Winter season (mainly because they’re practical in the cold). That said, I’m absolutely loving this year’s selection.

After all, there seems to be one set rule: the cosier, the better!

Here are 3 types of chunky knits I’m loving for the Autumn/Winter 2017/18 season.

Bold Hues

If you haven’t already heard, rainbow bright chunky knits are going to be a huge trend Spring/Summer 2018. That’s why it’s a great idea to start building up next season’s wardrobe NOW.

Invest in fashion-forward pieces while a lot of lines are reduced in the good old January sales.

From sunshine yellow to pillar-box red, vivacity is key! Simply dress down loud and proud chunky knits with jeans and trainers for everyday looks.

Alternatively, dress them up with a Clueless-style check skirt and black knee-high boots for more formal occasions.

Either way, don’t be afraid to stand out with chunky knits in bold hues this season. They sure do brighten up a dreary, wintry day – don’t they?

Pretty Pastels

Gorgeous and feminine, pastel-hued chunky knits are a treat for the eyes during the winter season.

Pastels are not only on trend for AW17, but they show no signs of going out of style for SS18. This is thanks to designers such as Victoria Beckham and Celine.

With pink being one of the key colours of the moment, I spotted that River Island cardigan (similar here) on one of my fave influencers and simply had to grab it while I could.

As well as being super snugly, it’s so easy to throw on. Especially when you’re in rush to get to Tesco at 8.45pm on a freezing cold Friday and it closes at 9pm.

In fact, I’ve never been so in love with a cardigan – and I guarantee that it’ll be a love affair that lasts a helluva long time.

Sports Luxe

Lastly, a key trend for AW17, sports luxe has featured in abundance across the January sales’ knitwear category.

From oversized structures to striped motifs, it’s cool to create a look that resembles Sporty Spice this season.

Merely team your sports luxe jumper with over-the-knee boots and giant hoop earrings for a night out with the gals. Or throw yours on over leggings and faux fur boots with a long-line blazer for smart-casual chic.
